2012 US Election Commentary
November 3, 2012
Here are three commentaries that are worth a read.
I like Rex Murphy’s political commentary because, generally speaking, I cannot easily conclude how he would vote. Here is a good synopsis of the multi-billion dollar two year campaign: http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/11/03/rex-murphy-barak-obama-versus-the-three-wild-cards/
As always, The Economist is a terrific read. I think this is one of the very best English language periodicals and do my best to read most issues cover to cover. The magazine narrowly endorsed Obama, but it was far from a enthusiastic one. This is a good summary of the two candidates: http://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21565623-america-could-do-better-barack-obama-sadly-mitt-romney-does-not-fit-bill-which-one
David Frum is not someone I generally read. He is totally predictable, but one can’t deny that he’s well read, has had the benefit of working in the White House and has lived in the US for sometime: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/11/01/why-i-ll-vote-for-romney.html
